With the basics under their belt, Karl Gude’s Illustration and Information Graphic class prepares for their paper airplane flight contest on Tuesday afternoon.
After spending Monday learning how to take drawings and adapt them in Adobe Illustrator, the class is tackling their end of the week project.
Collecting statistics based on their flight patterns, the group will use the information they gather to create individual information graphics. Each member will fly their own plane in a competition with their peers and then generate charts, graphs and diagrams about the results.
“I really liked drawing stuff out on the first day of class,” Grand Ledge High School senior Krystin Verran said. “I like that we got to be creative and use our imagination.”
With the upcoming project, the students will be forced to be more inventive than ever.
